Remember the Batu Tiga Speedway Circuit?

Remember the Batu Tiga Speedway Circuit?

In the news this week, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia gives us a taste of their EV future in Malaysia, and the Italian government is in talks with Europe to shield Ferrari and Lamborghini from the ICE ban in Europe in 2030. We also discuss two new Japanese cars: the questionable 2022 Subaru WRX, and a limited-run Nissan GT-R T-spec.

 

In Part 2, Daniel reminsces about the much-loved Batu Tiga Speedway Circuit. First opened in 1968, the old, buzzing, motorsports racetrack attracted huge crowds in the 70s, 80s and 90s, before being controversially demolished and replaced with a housing development in 2003.

 

Finally, we close the show with a review of the newly introduced Suzuki Swift Sport 1.4 Boosterjet - a unique RM140k hot hatch that you'd smile with, every day of the week.

Produced by: Ariff Roose

Presented by: Richard Bradbury, Ariff Roose, Daniel Fernandez
